The Test Of Time


There is something slightly fake about this Victorian photograph: the quality of the print is a little too good, the line between the foreground and the background is just a little too sharp.  I have examined the print carefully, and as far as I can make out, it is a genuine studio photograph from the 1880s. It is just that she has stood the test of time rather well.

  1. My first thought was that he (photographer) overexposed the background when printing it. But he sure did a good job of it, didn't he?
